Have you had a colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is an invasive procedure that allows for the full examination of the lining of your bowel (colon and rectum).

During the procedure, the colonoscopist spends most of the time looking for changes to the normal landscape of your bowel lining and removes anything that looks suspicious, like growths called polyps, which can lead to bowel cancer, for example.

If you are aged 18-and-over and have had a colonoscopy, we invite you to provide feedback about your experience.

My Colonoscopy Experience is a user-friendly and easy to understand questionnaire that can be completed anonymously in around 10 minutes.

Developed by Bowel Cancer Australia and powered by Healthie, the questions ask about your colonoscopy referral, pre-admission, care and treatment, interaction with staff, discharge from care and any post-procedure issues.


Why?

Every person’s feedback about their colonoscopy experience is unique and valuable.

Your experience with the health system is an important and meaningful measure of quality of care that can be used for performance monitoring purposes and to drive quality improvement.

My Colonoscopy Experience only takes a small amount of time to complete, but it can have a big impact.

Measuring patient colonoscopy experience in Australia is long overdue.

Help us ensure the patient voice is heard, so that future colonoscopy care reflects what patients want and need.


Together, we can make real change happen!
